Great night out.
Nov 2021
We loved the professionalism of the staff, and the weather was perfect.
I don’t eat seafood, so there was not as much choice in the mains for me. However, I made up for it with dessert!
There was plenty of food for everyone to go back for more if they wanted.
The welcome drink was a nice touch, and as far as I could see, everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, as did we.
The sunset happened before we sailed, but it was such a nice night, that it didn't spoil the experience.

Worse sunset cruise ever
Oct 2021
Should go earlier for so called sunset cruise. By the time we set off soon dark. Started out great with a glass of bubbly on the deck. Quickly became dark. Downstairs for an awful meal of bread and oil, hospital grade barramundi and a reasonable dessert. Very slow food service obviously to sell more drinks. No music, no commentary and no view through windows too dark. Very boring. Worse “sunset cruise” ever.

My best Cairns experience. Going again in a few weeks!
Oct 2021
This was top notch from start to finish. A ("free"), glass of bubbly or beer to start set the mood. The staff were very attentive and hard working. The ship is steady and easy to negotiate around and the water in the harbour and inlet is very flat. The music was perfect and helped make the atmosphere.
We had a sit down three course meal. The steak was perfect and the pana cotta was easily the best I have ever tasted. Wine choice was limited and connoisseurs will be disappointed, but prices were good.
The tables were well separated, both on deck when drinking and below when dining. and Covid protocols were followed.
Most of our trip was in the dark but that did not bother us. It just added to the romance.
Another acknowledgement for the staff. They should receive a pay rise :-)

Wonderful experience!!
Aug 2021 • Friends
Spirit of Cairns was such a wonderful experience! From the first moment at check in to when the cruise finished I could not fault it. All of the staff were absolutely incredible and the food was amazing. Would definitely recommend! Although it is winter and gets dark quite quickly the views were still very lovely.

Food very disappointing. Advertised 3 course sit down with what looked like gourmet style dishes. Provuded buffet with most hot dishes cold and definitely not gourmet style. Social distancing non existent. Staff friendly. Was nice wather for sailing around the harbour/marina

Gorgeous romantic cruise
Great ! First impressions are important and the welcome from the crew was warm , welcoming and friendly .
Checking in was smooth . Within seconds we were sipping sparkling wine on the top deck mixing with the other guests admiring the warm breeze and full moon it was relaxing and romantic .
Invited to our tables below deck we left the dock and sailed quietly along as we ate from the generous buffets which was very well prepared and supervised by the wait staff . the staff arranged for each table to step up to the buffet individually so there was no crowding and there was ample opportunity to return for seconds or thirds .
Desert was served after the main meal had been finished the same process was followed
It was quite well orchestrated . The food was brilliant , salads , antipasto , potato gratin pork belly , steamed fish ,fresh prawns , fresh oysters etc .
The wait staff were friendly and were engaging , constantly overseeing the tables and buffet and clearing any leftovers away instantly .
I’ve been on a few of these cruises and this would have to be the most pleasant one we have had . If your not enjoying yourself it’s nothing to do with the cruise or staff because they were exemplary . If your not satisfied after eating on this cruise ld find it a stretch to pin anything on the quality of the food provided.
I would recommend this cruise and l would also come on this cruise also because $99 is not a pinch on what it would be costing this company to run these cruises to the standard they are .
Good work Spirit of Cairns crew ! we were happy to have the experience you provided tonight thank you

Not impressed
Jun 2021
We felt for the price it was not much more than a sail, and a meal, and nothing to see as too dark except city lights, and being inside is just like a normal restaurant with no real atmosphere , the cost of wine was a lot considering you had only four red wines to choose from, and we sent back the $35 bottle as was undrinkable for me and then only choice $45 bottle of another brand. Drink Waitress had a lot of issues with drink orders and table numbers. Food was plentiful and buffet but not serve yourself with COVID. Clean and staff pleasant, tables for two, too close for my liking.

Hi Rianda26 Thank you for taking the time to give us valuable feedback about your experience. Spirit of Cairns is renowned for it’s delicious buffet dinner and calm water sail down Trinity Inlet – the backbone of our tour! Our Summer months are certainly the best option when it comes to viewing the sunset and surrounds, before we sail down the inlet, but we do love the view of the city lights during Winter months too! We will ensure that our waitresses are given more training on the drinks menu but are surprised to hear that you didn’t enjoy our house red wine, as it has been enjoyed by many customers in the past. Our staff would have happily advised of a better option from the seven other varieties we sell onboard, which may have been better suited to your taste. As with many businesses we have had to make many adjustments to our operations during COVID (which is ever changing), including how our buffet has operated. Thank you again for your feedback, we will pass this on to our restaurant manager.

Amazing night
Had the pleasure of the Spirit of Cairns during our 30th wedding anniversary holiday.
From when we boarded we were given such a warm welcome from the staff and given a welcome drink.
We stood on board and watched the beautiful view of Cairns as we left the harbour. We we’re all taken downstairs to an awesome buffet. So many tasty choices.
We met the chef, Shannon, who was so welcoming and a good laugh. Food was amazing Shannon.
Overall it was an awesome night. Highly recommend this trip for any occasion.
